STUDENTS from a Worthing school had a ‘life-changing experience’ when they visited the slums of India.
On the trip, they were joined by pupils from The Angmering School, and according to student Eden Shelton, it was a life-changing experience, full of memories that will stay with me forever”.
The students on the trip were sent to St Joseph’s School in India’s southern Andhra Pradesh region, where they got involved with lessons, from learning pronunciation to making papier mache planets.
Mark Leswell, a geography teacher who was on the trip, said: ”It was to be an unforgettable experience that will forever change our perspective on the world.”
During the five-day stay, the pupils from the South Farm Road school also got the chance to barter at a market and see the sights of rural India as they travelled by coach to the school each day.
Mr Leswell added: “As the week progressed, relationships with the Indian children strengthened and each day on the trip was a blessing for all.”
